chairman and the republican party's 2012 vice presidential nominee paul ryan here for his first live interview since the election. chairman, welcome back to meat meet. >> great to be back with you. >> let's talk about this top priority of the budget battle. it will really mark the beginning of the president's second term. the debt ceiling has been raised, at least temporarily, but there are still big decisions to be made. you specifically said in the last few days that your priority is to make a big down payment on the debt. a debt crisis that you see in this country. >> that's right. >> what do you specifically require? what's the priority? what has the president got to do in your point of view? >> i'll just explain what the speaker said when we passed that bill. our goal is to get cuts and reforms that put us on a path to balancing the budget in a decade. we think the senate ought to offer a budget. they haven't passed a budget in four years, even though we have a law that says we need a budget every year. we haven't seen any solutions offered by the president on how to get the bud
can strike americans in all forms. a sdabt, a storm, illness, or merely outliving our savings. ryan's budget imposes savage cuts to food stamps, children's health insurance, and other mitigations of suffering for the least fortunate. and ryan also voted against relief for victims of hurricane sandy. by ryan's definition, if the government is rebuilding your destroyed home, you're a taker too. >> look, this is a straw man argument. the president said earlier that we had suspicions about medicare and taking care of the elderly and feeding poor children. when he sets up these straw men, to affix views to add ver sears that they don't have, to win the argument by default, it's not an honest debate. we want to have a safety net. a safety net that's there for the vulnerable, poor, for people who cannot help themselves. but we don't want to have a culture in this country that encouraging more dependency that saps and drains people of their ability to make the most of their lives. >> which part of the culture today is doing that? is part of this culture that you even benefited from after yo
presidential candidate paul ryan and fellow republicans gearing up for another year of budget battles. but is the guilty plea getting ready to put on a new face? why one member of the party told them to stop being a party of stupid, when we come back. wx >>> some of the stories making headlines this morning, the death toll from rioting in egypt has risen to 31. the violence broke out saturday after a court handed down death sentences to almost two dozen local fans involved in a deadly brawl in a soccer game last year. at least 74 people were killed in that incident. many streets and stores are closed for fear of more rioting. the verdict for the 52 remaining defendants will come in march. >>> dozens of hikers stranded in flood waters in arizona have been rescued. this started from heavy rainfall, up to 50 adults and children got stranded when water rushed down mountain sides into canyons near tucson. some of them were taken out on foot, but others had to be rescued by helicopter. some of them survived by roping themselves together and using floatation dev
they need? >> it's hard to tell with the house. sometimes as we've seen this year. you had paul ryan say some nice things about rubio's plan. we might see him again being a leader on this issue. we'll see. >> so as we know, the devil's in the details. you both looked through the plan. right now it's a pretty 50,000 feet, about four pages long. these senators have not decided how long immigrants, for instance, will have to wait before they become citizens. rubio's saying a longer and less direct path than the dms had wanted. and how the government would verify the enforcement that has been enhanced they're describing in this draft so far. take a listen to what bob corker said on fox yesterday on "get your response." >> details matter. i think right now they're at the talking point stage and this needs to be reduced to legislation. the last time this blew up was when it was reduced to legislation. so it's my hope that we will come up with a bipartisan solution. >> nick, what are some of the details you think that, look, it's four pages right now. we're early on. what details need to be ham
ryan and the 47% comment that got mitt romney in trouble. there may have been high arching philosophical tones but there were also those tones. >> are you embracing the 47% comment? >> no, no, i wouldn't say, i don't know if it is fair to say it wasn't partisan at all. >> this was not a speech where he stood up and said my mission is to leave office like a ronald reagan, being the president who turned around an economy, restored the confidence of a nation in its place in the world. no. he turned inward. and he said my mission here is to pick up the legacy of martin luther king and expand it as i think you've noted. that's not something he needs to work with republicans in congress for. it is something he doesn't need money for, by the way. it is, you're right, a moral agenda. but it is a very left of center argument that he made today about government. and republicans are going to go after him on that. this was a warrior president today. >> there was a more aggressive tone, you might say. let's play another moment from the speech. >> together we determine that a modern econ

. and republican congressman paul ryan says he thinks this one issue is where the two parties can make a deal. here's what he said this morning. >> sorry about the technical glitch right there. as we work on that, we'll go to something else. >>> this past week it was announced the u.s. armed forces ban on women in combat will be lifted, not everyone is happy about that. two voices on opposite sides of this move square off and that's next. a restaurant is hard, try running four. fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've ever wanted to do and ink helps us do it. make your mark with ink from chase. i took my son fishing every year. we had a great spot, not easy to find, but worth it. but with copd making it hard to breathe, i thought those days might be over. so my doctor prescribed symbicort. it helps significantly improve my lung function starting within five minutes. symbicort doesn't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms. with symbicor

on capitol hill. you're seeing paul ryan work on the republicans' budget. so there is that interesting outsider versus insider dynamic going on. >> fascinating. we always say governors are pragmatic, and that seems to be what the divide is right now. i want to bring up something which is fascinating in battleground states. excuse me. republicans in these states, virginia, michigan, ohio, pennsylvania, they control the state legislature, they're trying to move legislation that would make it so it's not winner take all in the electoral college. that it's proportional, so that if you have -- you win via the congressional district, which a lot of republicans are saying, well, it means local control, but take virginia, northern virginia would get the same vote as out near tennessee, which has much less population. what is the purpose behind this? >> look, it's all about giving the republicans a significant advantage in these battleground states that they've lost in the past two presidential cycles. your example of virginia, president obama won the state by four percentage points, won it by
pennsylvania avenue on this saturday. thank you, ma'am. we'll check if with you later. >> thanks. >>> paul ryan is the latest republican offering his prescription for a gop comeback. congressman ryan addressed the national review institute giving them a pep talk of sorts on how to fight the president. >> he needs to delegitimize the republican party and house republicans in particular. he'll try to divide us with phony emergencies and bogus deals. you can't get rattled. we won't play the villain in his morality plays. we have to stay united. we have to show that if given a chance, we can govern. that we have better ideas. >> paul ryan's comments come a few days after fired louisiana governor bobby jindal gave a blunt assessment of his party. >> we have to stop being the stupid party. >> it's time for a new republican party that talks like adults. it's time for us to articulate our plans and visions for america in real terms. it's no secret we had a number of republicans who damaged the plans with offensive and bizarre comments, and i'm here to say we've had enough of that. >> i'll bring in moll
huffington post" -- ryan grimm joins us. you write that the senate modestly occurred filibuster's. essentially, what did they agree to? caller: what they agreed to is something, a series of steps that will quicken the pace of legislation in the senate. there has been a battle raging for the last couple of years over how they would rewrite the rules of the senate this chamber. there were two separate objectives that slightly overlap. one is that progressive senators wanted a higher quality of legislation, it wanted more progressive legislation to be able to get through, and a requirement of getting 60 votes rather than a simple majority was standing in the way. for somebody like majority leader harry reid -- harry reid, it was the volume of legislation. he thought the chamber was too backed up by the number of bills. under the current system, it could take an entire week to get legislation through, even if it had a near majority support, because of all the different rules involving 30 hours a post- cloture time, and intervening day, another cloture vote, and a cloture vote before
with the majority of voters? >> i think they can. i think they have. the rubios and the ryans and the cruzes are more connected to where people really live. i'm not saying this president is unattractive and people want to continue watching believe that he could unite, but at every turn, he does not unite. he does divide. we're going backwards in the sense of we're identifying by our color and our gender and our income and our region. and it's just -- i would argue that the democrats have moved away from the mainstream way more than the republicans have. and i keep coming back to the state argument. they will -- we are coming up on a midterm. we have a number of democrats that have won in states. the majority of them that mitt romney won by double digitses. with the possible exception of north carolina. those democrats that are in the senate, the senate's not done its job. the house republicans have passed a budget. the senate has not passed a budget since obamacare was passed. those senate democrats that were just elected like heidi heitkamp or claire mccaskill, they're not going to support
about you in that regard. >> glory days. >> hal: by the way in shocking news -- paul ryan hated obama's speech. he accused the president of using a strawman argument. >> the president is a proud and competent liberal progressive. he invoked the constitution of the declaration at times which are something that everybody likes to hear, especially conservatives. but he invoked them as a means to sort of legitimize the agenda he has going forward which was you know, fairly partisan. very ideology for sure. and you know, it doesn't surprise me he did that because he's basically saying i'm a govern and i'm going to govern as a liberal and i won. >> exactly. your point is? >> he ran as a liberal. he won as a liberal. >> liberals wouldn't say he ran as a liberal. they wouldn't say that at all. >> nor would they say the speech was overtly liberal. there are two people involved in a communication exchange. the person speaking and the person listening and both play a part in the conversation. and it should some as no surprise that paul ryan hears what he wants to hear. and his former would-be bo
-- >> next, paul ryan spoke at a summit here in washington. this is about 25 minutes. >> all right, ladies and gentlemen. we are about to hear from our next speaker, congressman paul ryan. [applause] when he was picked as mitt romney's running mate, he became a subject of fascination, even to his workout routine. which is the p90x routine. for those of you who are not fit enough to have a workout routine and it sounds like some advanced piece of weapon military are you happen not to work out before breakfast, the p90 x is is that you confuse your muscle by trying constantly new and different workouts everyday. we have evidence that paul ryan is very loyal to this workout routine. his most innovative workout has been caught on tape and broadcasted broadly. it includes running through the woods and pushing ladies in wheelchairs off a cliff. this is a tremendous workout. as you are pushing the wheelchair, it works out the legs really good on the running, the cargo --dcardio -- the cardio is there. depending on your technique of pushing the wheelchairs off the well. [laughter] i hope i'm not
the way, he is smacking p i people around, smacking around paul ryan, by employing his own "takers receipt righetorrhetori >> we recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, anyone of us in our time could face a sudden job loss, or illness, or a home sweat away in a terrible storm. the commitments we make to each other, through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not sap our initiative, they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> that is such an important point about how these programs free us. you know, we don't all have our grandmothers sleeping in the home with us because they now have social security, medicare, that changed the dynamics of poverty among elderly. who used to be the most poverty-stricken segment of society. >> and it used to be the numbers, what are the long-term budget impacts of it. what i was struck by, to go off of paul ryan's premise, in 2008, we need to come together because we're all rational people and let's do it for the common good. now it was,
a reaction to congressman paul ryan saying that the president needs a strongman argument in his inaugural address when he talked about the fact that the united states is not a nation of takers. congressman ryan said that the president misconstrued what he meant, what ryan meant when he used that term? a nation of takers? >> the president mentioned chairman ryan, but i mean, that phrase has been used by a number of republicans including paul ryan. the president's point was that these programs, social security and medicare in particular, have been enormously valuable to seniors in our country and to providing the security that has allowed for stronger economic growth and stronger job creation and a stronger middle class. i mean, the facts and figures on what the plight of the -- polite of the nation's seniors -- plight of the nation's seniors was before social security is well known. the insecurity that seniors face or would face if medicare were voucherized and the costs were shifted to them, if they had a limited amount of money to spend on health care and the rest was up to them, i think
ryan, right there. ryan accused 60% of americans of being takers instead of makers. his party campaigned on reforming medicare, medicaid and social security, but ryan reportedly got booed as he walked through this morning. ryan's reception is a striking reminder of why the republicans lost the election. today the president assured groups like the aarp and labor he hasn't forgotten his promise. >> we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit. but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. >> some republicans are complaining now that the president's speech was too partisan and didn't reach out enough. here is a news flash. this isn't about those republican lawmakers. this is about you, the american people and the policies that the president has put forth. it's about fixing the budget without burdening the poor in this country or the elderly or the disabled. the next four years are going to be very interesting. let
in urban areas, which definitely gave president obama the big margin to win this race. >> both paul ryan and mitt romney were outspoken about blaming their loss in november on a democratic coalition of women, minorities, and young people in this country. days after the election paul ryan saw a problem with the system. >> there's always an electoral college strategy in winning these things. and you know what states you need to win to get to 270 electoral votes. and when we watch the -- look at the map here, virginia and ohio coming in, and those ones coming in as tight as they were and then looking like we were going to lose them, that was when it game pretty clear to us we weren't going to win. >> paying attention now? now republicans have a new electoral strategy. win as many electoral votes as you can, even if you lose by a very large margin. rnc chair reince priebus announced his intention to pursue the virginia model nationally. and it would have quite an effect. this is the result of the 2012 presidential election. barack obama won 332 electoral votes, beating mitt romney's 206 vote
your big interview and the republican party coming up with paul ryan on "meet the press." there is breaking news also today. pete williams, the appeals court in d.c., the court right below the supreme court has delivered a big setback to the president on recessed appointments, and these are big recess appointments. sdhoo these are the controversial ones the president made a year ago to richard coregray to run the new consumer protection board and for three people to be on the national labor relations board. all were recess appointments. you may remember this big fight between the president and congress. we come in every day and say we're iffing to be back tomorrow, and the president said that's a sham. you're in recess. i can do these recess appointments. the appeals court said wrong on both counts, mr. president. they said, first of all, the constitution says these can be made during the recess. not a recess. that's a break between one session of congress and the other. the president can only appoint someone when a recess arises. they say the whole point of this recess
that said pass a budget or no pay. >> paul ryan wears that orange tie a lot. boehner wears that green tie quite a bit. the democrat-controlled senate has not produced a detailed budget in 1,366 days. yesterday democratic leaders said the measure is actually a victory for the president. >> i'm not sure what happened at the house republican retreat last week, but it sure had a mellowing effect on their members. maybe there were deep breathing exercises, soft jazz music. something good happened. the bill represents a huge deescalation on the debt ceiling issue. it hands the president his second major win in a month. and it shows that republicans are in full on retreat on fiscal policy. >> meanwhile, speaker boehner offering his interpretation of president obama's inauguration speech and what he sees as the president's two agenda for the second term. >> we're expecting over the next 22 months to be the focus of this administration as they attempt to annihilate the republican party. and let me just tell you, i do believe that is their goal. to just shove us into the dust bin of history. >> the
, a little disheartening. you think we'll get one out of all this. >> the house passed a budget, the ryan budget that would decimate many things that the middle class actually depends on. and i also want to say that already signed into law is $2.4 trillion worth of spending cuts. the republicans act as if that didn't happen and we're starting now from ground zero. and the majority, the vast majority of americans say that asking the wealthiest americans to pay a bit more is exactly what they sympathy is a fairest way to deal with a deficit issue. tracy: i'm not sure, i'm not sure they will agree with that when these wealthy americans stop buying stuff because more money is being taken away from them. congressman -- >> come on. tracy: you know, i'm sorry, it is the way it works in this country and the other thing is -- >> no it is not. tracy: you're not going to collect the revenue you're looking for because wealthy americans are smart enough to figure out a way around it. congressman, gowdy, one of the things we haven't heard a word about, or at least not enough about is the entitlement sp
